The following is from http://blogs.technet.com/b/systemcenteressentials/archive/2009/09/01/using-psexec-to-open-a-remote-command-window.aspx

With psExec installed you can open a remote command prompt by calling it as follows:

psExec \\computer cmd

If you have psExec installed on your computer with the Essentials console you can create a task in Essentials to open a remote command window from within Essentials.

To create this task:

    Go to the Authoring workspace
    In the navigation pane on the left hand side, expand Management Pack Objects and select Tasks
    From the Tasks pane, select Create a New Task
    Select Command Line from the Console Tasks folder and click Next
    In the Task Name field, type "Remote Command Window"
    In the Description type "Use the SysInternals PsExec tool to open a remote command window for the selected computer. PsExec must be installed on the computer with the Essentials console."
    In the Task Target, click Select and then choose Windows Computer and click OK
    Click Next
    In the Application field, type the full path the psexec.exe on the Essentials console (e.g. C:\pstools\psexec.exe). If you have the console on multiple computers you will need psExec installed in the same location on each of them.
    Enter \\ then Click the arrow at the end of the Parameters field and select Net BIOS Computer Name, then add a space and enter cmd
    Uncheck the Display output when this task is run box
    Click Create

You can either add "/y" to your command line, which will stop all dependent services without confirmation:
net stop IMAService /y

Open in new window

or stop the dependent services before you stop the IMA service
net stop "Citrix WMI Service"
net stop "Citrix SMA Service"
net stop "IMAService"

Open in new window

The latter is the better solution if you want to retain control over the order in which the services are stopped (which, in this case, doesn't really matter).
